The strength of the e-fulfillment service provider QeOPS is based on synergies with Cargus, the courier company that has become a shareholder of QeOPS and can thus offer complete services in the final distribution area, ranging from complex logistics services to courier services, reducing the time for parcel pick-up.
Ana Dumitrache, Country Head CTP Romania, said: “One of the main advantages of CTP partners is the possibility to expand immediately and under excellent conditions. This is also the case for QeOPS, a company that has shown tremendous momentum over the last three years. We started the collaboration in 2019, and this year QeOPS took the step to a space 2.5 times larger than the initial one, with almost 15,000 sqm today. This growth was also supported by the capital infusion brought by Cargus, another CTP partner present in the same park, CTPark Bucharest, a business ecosystem where multiple synergies are created between occupiers.”
CTPark Bucharest is the closest CTP park to Bucharest, which has evolved from large logistics to smaller last mile units, courier, ecommerce and retail in general, and is located close to the most populated area of Bucharest, the western area. It is a diverse and very dynamic park with diverse residents, from artisan coffee roasters and printers to distributors of agricultural machinery, hardware, cooling and heating systems, roofing, online distributors of cosmetics, medical devices and even manufacturers of rainwater harvesting systems and plasterboard profiles.
Furthermore, CTPark is in continuous development and currently has 5 photovoltaic plants with a total installed capacity of 2.9 MW in the authorisation and implementation phase, which will produce 3,811 MWH per year (equivalent to the annual needs of more than 2000 households), to be distributed in priority to its tenants.
Paul Copil, founder & CEO of QeOPS, said: “We chose CTPark Bucharest industrial park because of its strategic location and the facilities it offers, which perfectly meet our development needs. We took into account the well-being of the employees, the proximity to the Cargus hub and the permanent focus on operational excellence. At the moment, we have more than 50 customers, medium and large companies, storing in our premises products ranging from sewing needles to large household appliances, with a picking and packing error rate of only 4:1,000,000. With QeOPS and Cargus technologies and systems, our customers benefit from a comprehensive package of logistics and last-mile services and solutions.”
